RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.


The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Yet Another School Rant (By Me)

So, yeah. Another rant.

School isn't all that bad. I like lessons where you learn through experience, rather than 100 pointless paragraphs. Lessons like Drama, PE and a bit of Science have the right idea. But everything else, well, it's just boring. How they expect us to 'learn' through boredom and being screamed at, IDK.

We can't listen to music because it's 'distracting', even with earphones. Distracting from what, boredom?
We can't text to our family, also because it's distracting. Ok, I won't have contact with my parents because a stranger told me so.
We can't go to the toilet because, well they don't give a reason. They'd rather I shit myself than let it out normally? Nice education.
We can't talk because, guess what? It's distracting. I'll talk whenever I want to, are you going to put duct tape over my mouth? Freedom of speech, biatch.
Finally, we can't have our coat on because, and I quote, 'I don't know, ask the headteacher'. I would, if they would tell me where his office is and wouldn't suspend me for it. FFS, what's wrong with a coat?

I'm sorry I don't want to be a historian. I'm sorry i don't want to be a mathematician. I'm sorry for all you brainwashed innocent children who are forced to go here every single day.

"Shut up and do your work."


"Give me your phone!"


"You are being disrespectful."

Congrats for doing something I never had the balls to do.
If you have kids, save them from the bullshit you are forced to go through.
